Two of my pens have gone missing. I’ve pulled the house apart several times and though I don’t remember taking them out of the house, the only other place they could be (aside from permanently lost) is in my studio. The pens in question are my black Pelikan M200 fountain pen w/ an EF Binder nib and my new J. Herbin rollerball w/ a Violette Pensee cartridge.
I admittedly own a lot of different pens- fountain pens, Japanese calligraphy pens, artist pens, rollerballs, gel pens… my favorite being whatever pen I’m enjoying in the moment. I’d only just received the Herbin rollerball a short time before it went missing- which is a bummer because I wanted to snap a few pics and tell you what a sweet little pen it is. The Pelikan was one of my early fountain pen acquisitions and it would come and go as one of my favorites. I hope I find it.
Have you ever lost a favorite pen? How did it affect you? Were you able to replace it?
